you a bitch

It’s called copula deletion, or zero copula. Many languages and dialects, including Ancient Greek and Russian, delete the copula (the verb to be) when the context is obvious.

So an utterance like “you a bitch” in AAVE is not an example of a misused you, but an example of a sentence that deletes the copular verb (are), which is a perfectly valid thing to do in that dialect, just as deleting an /r/ after a vowel is a perfectly valid thing to do in an upper-class British dialect.

The United States gives 8.5 million dollars per day in military aid to Israel so anyone who still thinks America isn’t involved “per se” can eat my ass. The financial collaboration coming from the United States is exactly what funds and allows the illegal and genocidal Israeli occupation of Palestine. 

Not to mention that the U.S.’ permanency on the UN Security Council is the main thing that prevents the UN from coming down on Israel for its war crimes.
